Oct-12-09  birthtimes: Karpov's last 20 moves of this game is a textbook illustration of how to plan and play against various pawn and weaksquare weaknesses within an enemy's position...it doesn't get any better than this...
Oct-12-09  WhiteRook48: 52 Bg2?!
Oct-12-09  Grumpi: WhiteRook48: white rook is hanging --> 52...Qxa5

  Shams: A gorgeous final position and a triumphant game by Karpov. I wonder if Saidy takes a perverse pride in this game, having been brought to his knees which such artistry. Karpov must have heard that everything is bigger in Texas, and planned accordingly.
